Family that has lost 188 Pounds

Monday, January 15, 2007

Here's a great SparkMail I received from a member (she gave me permission to share). She is also a mother of 5, so who knows how many people their lifestyle change will impact over the years!

Subject: Thank you
Message: I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how much I appreciate what you are doing. I just read the State of the Spark Address (I love the name) I was over come with gratitude to you for all that you have done for me personaly as well as my mother and father in law and my husband. We are all following Spark and to date our weight loss in all is 188 lbs. We combined lost a PERSON!!! I have lost the least at 23 lbs.

When I read that you are using your personal monies plus not getting paid I just wanted to hug you and say thank you so much for caring about me and my family so much that you would choose to do this for us. Well since I can't hug you physicaly here is my web hug

You have done something many of us wish we could do. You have impacted in a positive way thousands upon thousands of people. You have blessed us so much that there is nothing I can do to express how much this means to me.

My father and mother are also using your system and guess what? My father who was on blood pressure and cholesterol medicine as well as being diabetic turned his life around. He is off all medications and 50 lbs. lighter. Thank you for being instrumental in giving my father a new lease on life.

You are appreciated.

    I think there are many of us that would love to hug you for all you've done for us. I haven't been here long but I can tell you, this is now "home" to me. You, what you've started here, and all that you and your team pour into the site are what keep me going every single day.

    Thank you doesn't even seem to touch how much I appreciate Sparkpeople...but thank you, from the bottom of my heart!
